rognostic Value of Oral Glucose Tolerance Test, Insulin Like Growth Factor-1 and Transferrin in Cirrhotic Patients
Background: Glucose intolerance occurs frequently in patients with liver cirrhosis. However, few studies have assessed its prognostic value in patients with liver cirrhosis. Aim: To evaluate the importance of oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), insulinlike growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and serum transferrin (TRF) in prediction of disease outcome in patients with post-hepatitic liver cirrhosis. Methods: Seventyfour patients with posthepatitic liver cirrhosis ... Read more

Alterations in Thyroid Gland Size and Functions in Cirrhotic Patients: Relationships with Splanchnic Haemodynamics
BACKGROUND: Thyroid dysfunction has long been reported in liver disease. But limited information is available on thyroid size and the involvement of thyroid hormones in the haemodynamic alterations of cirrhosis. AIMS: to 1) study changes in thyroid gland volume and functions in different grades of liver cirrhosis. 2) investigate the relationship of thyroid hormone levels to changes in the hepatic ...

Relationship of Serum Resistin and Adiponectin to Insulin Resistance in Cirrhotic Patients
Background: Liver cirrhosis is a catabolic disease characterized by decreased adipose tissue mass and a proinflammatory state. Although hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance are commonly found in these patients, their exact mechanisms are not fully understood. Among the candidate mediators, the adipokines resistin and adiponectin have been incriminated in experimental animal models. Their exact role in cirrhotic patients remains a subject ... Read more

FIBRINOLYTIC CHANGES IN PLASMA AND ASCITIC FLUID IN CIRRHOTIC PATIENTS
_Advanced liver disease is commonly associated with both exaggerated fibrinolysis and with ascites. THE AIM OF THIS STUDY was to determine fibrinolytic activity in plasma and ascitic fluid (AF) of patients with liver cirrhosis and its correlation with some screening tests of coagulation “platelet count, prothrombin time & concentration (PT& PC),and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT)”, and severity of liver ...

Role of zinc in subclinical hepatic encephalopathy: Comparison with somatosensory‐evoked potentials
Background: Minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) is defined as hepatic encephalopathy (HE) WITHOUT SYMPTOMS ON CLINICAL/NEUROLOGICAL EXAMINATION, BUT WITH DEFICITS IN SOME COGNITIVE AREASTHAT CAN ONLY BE MEASURED BY NEUROPSYCHOMETRIC TESTING. AIM: OUR AIM WAS TO STUDY SERUM ZINCLEVELS IN CIRRHOTIC PATIENTS WITH AND WITHOUT MHE AND CORRELATE IT WITH THE RESULTS OF NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL TESTS AND P300 EVENT RELATED POTENTIAL. PATIENTS ...

Renal failure after upper-gastrointestinal bleeding among cirrhotic patients in Upper Egypt
Background and study aims: Renal dysfunction is a common and serious problem in patients with advanced liver disease. The study aims to assess the incidence, risk factors and short-term prognosis of renal failure after upper-gastrointestinal bleeding among cirrhotic patients in Upper Egypt. Methods: We recruited 159 cirrhotic patients with 168 episodes of upper-gastrointestinal bleeding from Tropical Medicine and Gastroenterology Department, ... Read more

Prognosis and determinants of pregnancy outcome among patients with post-hepatitis liver cirrhosis
Objective: To evaluate maternal, fetal, and neonatal outcomes and their associated risk factors among pregnant women with liver cirrhosis (LC). Methods: A prospective cohort study was conducted at Sohag University Hospital, Egypt, between May 1, 2009, and April 1, 2012. Participants included 129 pregnant women with LC (study group), 647 pregnant women without LC (control group 1), and 853 non-pregnant ... Read more

Stemness-related transcriptional factors and homing gene expression profiles in hepatic differentiation and cancer
Stem cell transcriptional signature activation is an essential event in the development of cancer. This study aimed to investigate the differential expression profile of three pluripotency-associated genes (_OCT4_, _NANOG_, and _SOX2_), G-protein-coupled chemokine receptor 4 (_CXCR4_) and the ligand (_CXCL2_), and alpha feto-protein (_AFP_) in hepatogenic differentiated stem cells and in sera of hepatitis C virus (HCV) and HCV-induced hepatocellular ...

Role of Serum Zinc Level and P300 Event Related Potential in Detection of Minimal Hepatic Encephalopathy
Background: Minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) is defined as hepatic encephalopathy (HE) without symptoms on clinical/neurological examination, but with deficits in some cognitive areas that can only be measured by neuropsychometric testing. Aim: Our aim was to study serum zinc levels in cirrhotic patients with and without MHE and correlate it with the results of neuropsychological tests and P300 event related ... Read more
